he was the security guard at the westgate mall and he was one of the first people there as the wave of attackers came in. the four men, as you said are being accused of that attack. but partially accused of being part of the broader network of that attack. and the worry is this is the only authority brought into kenya network. and this authority is believed to be only in kenya but across the border in the north african region. nearly four months, the fact that these are the first four we're seeing in court, many of our security forces from the u.s. and uk, have been waiting with us an issue of some concern to them, john. >> there seems to be some series of discrepancies. there are authorities that say the attackers were killed at the mall. and many here at the u.s. believe they got away completely. so exactly what is the connection of these four men who are on trial today? >> reporter: well, the four men, two of whom were found to have
illegal kenyan documentation. they are from somalia. they had in their possession kenyan i.d. that's one of the charge that's kenyan authorities believe will stick. but the broader charges about the connection of those gunmen carried out in the attack, these are things that the kenyan authorities still haven't gimp us the sense that they have the proof to make stick. and as you said, these discrepancies, the nypd in an earlier report said they believe some men escaped. the fbi has said that they believe from the kenyan authorities that the four died in the attack. from what they know, based on what our team saw, that crime scene was not secured. that first day at that westgate mall, people were able to go right into that building. there was never a sense that there was any kind of alarm there. i find it hard to believe that anyone categorically can say that no one escaped.
it was just disarray. panic, terror, never a sense that the kenyan authorities had it under control. and the fbi also says they believe this would be a propaganda for al shabaab network implicated in this that woo come out and say we pulled this off and our guys escaped. no one, not the nypd, not the kenyan authorities have put together an argument that any more of the men involved in this. hopefully, that's what the kenyan government is seeking to prove in the coming days. >> not a lot of transparency. nima, thank you so much. this country, a retired police captain accused of opening fire in a florida movie theater is still in jail this morning after a judge denied bail for 71-year-old curtis reeves. he's charged with second degree murder in the shooting death of another moviegoer. police say it started because of

branson. investigators are reviewing the cockpit voice recorders. they plan to interview the crew to decide what exactly happened. >> there's a myriad of residence that are going to be looked at so the ntsb when they look at that probable cause will say how do we mitigate this so it doesn't happen again. >> drug and alcohol tests are now complete. more about the train in new york. the report came to no conclusions about the cause of the derailment that left four people dead and offered no suggestions on how to prevent it from happening again. but the report did disclose that the derailment caused $9 million in damage. in chicago today, thousands of pages of documents, thousands of pages, about the priest sex abuse scandal there. showing how the church handled the sex abuse complaints.

dropped the ball since the withdrawal in december 2011. allowing nuri al maliki to continue with sectarian politician that he has for years, really. and he's alienated the sunnis to allow that breeding ground to develop for the more radicals. the fighter combats to come back into action and we've seen them, of course, very active of late, christine. >> certainly a tinderbox and a dangerous situation there. michael holmes, thank you. staying in the region, egyptians are back at the polls vote on a new constitution. this amid violence that has taken 11 lives in arrests of some who have called for their countrymen to boycott the vote for the country in this state of chaos since the ouster of democratically elected president mohamed morsi. clean water for more than a 30 of west virginians affected by a chemical spill last week
